Former 9/11 Chairs Criticize Handling of Xmas Bomber Case

January 26, 2010 ABC NEWS -- Former 9/11 Chairs Criticize Handling of Detroit Christmas Day Bomber Case

The two former chairmen of the 9/11 Commission expressed concerns today about how security agencies responded to the arrest of alleged Christmas Day bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab and the decision to quickly charge him instead of attempting to gain valuable intelligence information.

Before the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee, former 9/11 Commission vice-chair Lee Hamilton testified there needs to be more urgency when confronting Al Qaeda, saying the terrorist group "is on the march, not on the run…the sense of urgency for terrorism has been too low."

"Here is a man who may have trained with other people who are trying to get into this country one way or another, who may have worked with some of the top al Qaeda leadership in Yemen or al Qaeda generally and we don't know the details of that," Thomas Kean, former chairman of the 9/11 Commission, told the committee. "He may know about other plots that are pending and we haven't found out about them."

Related to this story are the Congressional Hearings which implied Abdulmutallab was intentionally allowed on the plane so the government could use him to help catch other terrorists.
Kurt Haskell and Shama Chopra witnessed a "well dressed man" act as an accomplice in helping Abdulmutallab board the plane. They are convinced that this "well dressed man" was a U.S. government agent because all the evidence points in this direction.

Besides now being labeled "conspiracy theorists" by the media, CNN recently refused to make mention of the "well dressed man" when they interviewed the Haskells, nor did they mention the many other oddities surrounding the Christmas Day Bombing event.

Kurt Haskell states: "...I am speaking out only as a means to inform the public of the true story. I don't believe you can have a free country if the truth is continually hidden from the citizens of the country...."
"...I have contacted both of my Senators and my Congressman. All of them refuse to talk to me."
